The Clinical Research Center
The Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) Clinical Research Center (CRC) was established to develop, facilitate, manage and enhance research at MVH. The goals of the Center are to:
- Facilitate, develop and promote relevant research, which contributes both to patient care and to the body of investigative literature.
- Participate in providing an inquiring environment to the academic atmosphere of the MVH-Wright State University (WSU) health center concept in conjunction with the Premier Health (Premier)-WSU Clinical Trials and Research Consortium (CTRC).
- Establish a basic curriculum of study and understanding of the research process to involve attending physicians, faculty, residents and students.
- Provide educational opportunities for healthcare providers utilizing high fidelity computer simulation devices.
The CRC consists of 2000 square feet of office, teaching and conference space with a dedicated computer network. Additionally, the Bioscience Center has 5000 square feet of laboratory space for activities in support of patient care.
The Bioscience Center and Orthopedic Specialty Training Laboratory
The Bioscience Center is a modern, well-equipped facility for support of overall hospital education activities. Unique capabilities include a microsurgical suite, a microvascular laboratory and a gross anatomy laboratory in addition to research laboratories. Various anatomy laboratories for resident training, careflight training, and mobile medical intensive care training are also conducted at the Center.
The Center maintains two adult and one baby SimMan® high fidelity, computer controlled simulators. Video recording is available for post-event review.
This facility provides a skills laboratory for training in unique orthopedic procedures.
Centralized Management for All Research Activities and Clinical Trials
The CRC serves as the focal point for all research activities at MVH and as liaison with WSU. The CRC Staff assists in protocol development, providing guidance on institutional review procedures required by MVH or WSU. CRC staff also provides access to software for statistical analysis, data entry, graphical presentations, manuscript preparation and logistic support to carry out protocols.
A central office works with the CTRC to manage all clinical trials. Nurses specifically trained in the regulatory process are available to assist investigators. Administrative support for consent documents and IRB applications is available.
